Kvichak Aspelund

Kvichak (Kwi-jack) is a lifelong resident of Naknek, Alaska. His family dates back several generations in the Bristol Bay region.

Kvichak’s childhood was spent along the river beds of Bristol Bay.

The Aspelund family is renown throughout Alaska for their cultural background and continued support of the responsible growth of the Last Frontier. They are active members of the Bristol Bay Native Corporation and strive to bring a balance of educational opportunity and preservation for our lands to those who live in and those who visit Alaska.

In 2013, Kvichak graduated from the Bristol Bay Flying Fishing and Guide Academy, taking his natural aptitude and turning it into a skill which he can share with others. The academy is hosted by the industry’s top leading professionals to provide the skill set necessary to become a world-class guide.

Unique to this particular school is that it enhances the knowledge of those participants who have already spent 16-20 years living in the wildness of Alaska.
